From nurse and expecting mommy Bonnie C. -
If you're only looking for a trainer to sculpt your abs, do not waste your time here.
If you're not willing to literally crawl before graduating to walking, do not bother contacting Sam.
If you're not willing to do LOTS of reading homework in an effort to challenge conventional approaches to nutrition, do not pick up your phone to call Sam.
If you're not willing to text photos of everything you eat for 2 weeks WITHOUT FAIL so that Sam can get an idea of what you eat, this is not the place for you.
If you're just looking to lose some weight for an upcoming event (wedding, honeymoon, etc) and that's it, this isn't the place for you.
If you love forking your money over to the supplement industry, you might want to consider dialing another trainer.
If you are willing to work extremely hard, give 110%, realize that fitness does not end the minute you leave the gym and completely overhaul the way you used to think about working out and nutrition, then this is the place you for you.
Sam will turn everything you THINK you know on its head as he runs you through your training. Training with Sam isn't just exercising because he insists you exercise a muscle you normally wouldn't associate with "working out" and that's your BRAIN. If you think I'm kidding, let me reassure you that I am not. While you are huffing and puffing and your face is turning an alarming shade of red, he WILL be asking you about any number of the "homework" he has assigned to you when he agreed to take you on as a client. If you think he doesn't remember what you have and have not read, let me tell you that Sam has the memory of an elephant. He. Will. Remember. And then he'll ask you the next time he sees you.
That's right. HE determines if YOU are worthy as a client. Sam's approach to training is wildly different from any other method I've ever come across. He cares about you and how you're doing. It's hard to believe that when you're scrabbling across the floor facing off against his beautiful (and equally relentless and brutally efficient) wife and you swear you're about to drop dead....but he really does care.
He will email you. He will text you. He will check in on you routinely to see how you're progressing and will alter his plan accordingly. Sam trains you the way elite professional athletes train and therein lies the difference between his method and all the other trainers out there.
When you come on as a client of AOE, what you're really signing up for is the opportunity to train the way athletes do. What's also stupefying is how Sam charges for his services. It is beyond affordable...and the results are incredible.
When you join AOE, what you're really doing is becoming a part of a small community where everyone encourages each other and celebrates our small victories.
